bearers in the next election, in 20 -- >> 2016. but it's -- jon: marco rubio -- >> yes. >> rand paul, jeb bush -- >> yes. jon: and each of them is sort of criticizing the other's immigration plan. >> and united we stand, divided we fall. 2016 is an eternity away. i understand that self-preservation is the first law of nature, but right now we need to bring our country together, and this is an issue that will maybe help jeb, rand paul or rubio gain more hispanic support when they do decide to run. jon: well, and there wasn't a lot of hispanic support the last time around -- >> not for mitt romney. jon: about 30% as compared with 70% for president obama. >> right. and jeb bush's brother, president bush, got 45% of the hispanic vote. so we have a long road to go now. the gang of eight, they want to have a vote on this bill june/july. i'm hopeful, also, the house can pass a bill so we can have comprehensive immigration reform. jon: are the two bodies likely to see eye to eye? i mean, it's one thing to get republicans and democrats together in the senate which is a more collegial body -- >> ye
is the surest way to lose the next election, that is one of the conclusions? >> right. it says that you can't act hostile to immigrants or hispanic americans or have hostile rhetoric and expect them to vote for you. it may not be the number one issue for immigrant americans or hispanic americans but it is one of those issues where you have to sound like you're welcoming before they can look at other issues. so that was one of the areas where they recommended. and frankly, a lot of republicans are already on board with this, leading the way is marco rubio obviously and the gang of eight which is pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. jon: we've seen president obama going in for soft media interviews, "people" magazine, "the view", "the daily show" with jon stewart. republicans have to do the same thing according to this report. >> sounds a little bit frivolous but maybe it is but one of the suggestions in the report that republicans do more apearns poos on colbert report and daily show and do interviews with "us weekly." they have very serious proposals in the report. some things whic
winds down over the next 29 months and the need for transparency and fairness in the upcoming elections. for the first time in 12 years hamid karzai will not appear on the ballot. over the weekend jon mentioned secretary kerry met with another leader that. iraqi's leader, nouriel malaki. he wants iran to stop using iraqi airspace to deliver foreign fighters to the fighters and the regime in damascus. >> may made it clear members of congress and people in america are increasingly watching what iraq is doing and wondering how it is that a partner in the efforts for democracy and a partner for whom americans feel they have tried so hard to be helpful, how that country can be in fact doing something that makes it more difficult to achieve our common goals? >> reporter: so far however the shiite-dominated malaki government has not closed its airspace to the shiite regime in tehran. follow me on twitter at at james rosen@fnc i will tell you who else from the iraqi government recently got the same message. jon and jenna. jon: james rosen, thank you. we'll have more on secretary kerry's surpris
friend bebe. he knows, benjamin netanyahu just won re-election like the president has. the netanyahu is likely to be in the job for a while. he is fated to have to deal with him. so it makes sense to have this kind of at least, get the relationship back into at least a, some kind of, lack of hostility at a minimum. jon: it was written in one of the papers that the president offered to israel or israelis the kind of warm embrace that they are accustomed to getting from american presidents but they hadn't gotten from this president up till now. >> no, they haven't. there is no question about that. in fact the first term was full of testy exchanges and i think that the president thought, okay, i can twist israel's arm and make them do this. it turns out he really can't. he needs their trust. now he also went to ramallah and met with the palestinian authority leader where they were a lot warier about u.s. commitments and you think he discovered that, there is still a long, way, jon, for there to go between if we get peace between the palestinians and israelis. it is an interesting questi
elections? >> well it is critical. you stop and think about this. of course let's focus here on the senate, not the house. what you have is, you have i think it is 10 democratic senators who are unaring in states that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legisla
to have a little more context nowment immigration is expected to play a major role in upcoming elections because so many people are affected. the latest numbers are from 2011. when the department of homeland security says there were 11.5 million illegal immigrants living in the united states. that's down slightly from 2007 when the number reached its peek of 11.8 million. in 2011 u.s. immigration and customs enforcement removed nearly 400,000 illegal immigrants, the highest number in agency history. jon: staying in washington, it is a big job on capitol hill with the senate expected to approve a plan to keep the government running, and we're getting word funding for some critical programs hit hard by automatic spending cuts might also be restored. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel live on capitol hill with that. seems like the biggest fight is not the short-term funding, but the broader budget debate, huh. >> >> reporter: the so-called continuing revolution to avoid a government shutdown seems to be on the path toward passage. overall, everybody seems to be feeling pretty go
